So many liberal news sources are reporting on the IRS issue, does that damage con claims of bias?

I thought cons said that the liberal media loved Obama and would never report anything against him no matter how bad?

yet here we are...

Update:

they were reporting the IRS thing before the AP story even broke... just saying

    For the uninformed voter ~ The liberal bias` media only reported on the IRS because the IRS issued a public apology , then they reported it as they couldn`t sit on that story because the truth was out ! Conservatives were telling you and your liberal bias` media about the IRS over a year ago , why no liberal bias` media reporting back then ? Oh ; wait there was liberal bias media coverage , but it was to accuse the Tea Party of being anti-Obama and conspiracy theorist ! The only reason Obama is catching any negative coverage at all form the liberal bias` media is because his DOJ secretly , illegally gained access to the AP`s phone records. One with any common sense might ask ; why in the hell would Obama`s DOJ do that to Obama`s biggest cover up media ?? So the liberal media is now seeing that they are expendable to Obama and his DOJ , just like anyone else that "disagrees" [or in the AP`s case "agrees"] with Obama`s policies are subject to Obama`s wrath and misuse of power...... Friend and Foe alike are disposable if it benefits Obama ! Under the bus is getting crowded ! Here`s a story you won`t see reported by your liberal bias` media ~

    Source(s): Surely you`re not stupid enough to believe that the liberal bias` media isn`t bias` anymore because they reported on 1 negative Obama story in 5 years ??? Just saying .

    Well, since we all pay taxes and if you have ever been on the wrong side of the table during an audit you would understand the concern of the bias the IRS had toward conservative groups (liberals could be next). They are also all over the AP story, since it is them not us being violated by this administration. Maybe they have awakened from whatever stupor they have been in for the last 6 years. As for the conservatives claims, with the awakening, the claim is validated.

    Not exactly.

    Obama has created a situation in which they MUST report or risk losing all relevance. They are acutely aware of this.

    Obama will not be the president forever. They know this better than ever now.

    LOL

    Only took you a few days to give up the "Fox News Talking Points" rants

    To answer your question, it depends on if they report the truth or not. Do they spin it in such a way to make it appear less than what it is.

    But is is bad for Obama.. How bad?... well.. This bad

    Maureen Dowd

    New York Times

    The administration’s behavior before and during the attack in Benghazi, in which four Americans died, was unworthy of the greatest power on earth.

    President Obama knew he was sending diplomats and their protectors into a country that was no longer a country, a land rife with fighters affiliated with Al Qaeda.

    Yet in this hottest of hot spots, the State Department’s minimum security requirements were not met, requests for more security were rejected, and contingency plans were not drawn up, despite the portentous date of 9/11 and cascading warnings from the C.I.A

    Chris Matthews:

    President Obama "obviously likes giving speeches more than he does running the executive branch," Chris Matthews said tonight.

    "What part of the presidency does Obama like? He doesn't like dealing with other politicians -- that means his own cabinet, that means members of the congress, either party. He doesn't particularly like the press.... He likes to write the speeches, likes to rewrite what Favreau and the others wrote for the first draft," Matthews said.

    "So what part does he like? He likes going on the road, campaigning, visiting businesses like he does every couple days somewhere in Ohio or somewhere," Matthews continued. "But what part does he like? He doesn't like lobbying for the bills he cares about. He doesn't like selling to the press. He doesn't like giving orders or giving somebody the power to give orders. He doesn't seem to like being an executive.”

    It shows you how deep Obama is screwed if his friends stop protecting him. I think the AP story really pissed of the leftwing media. Lets see if they back off or keep going. They might do the rope a dope and next week say they investigated and there is no there there.

    Here we are now. Where were they from the get go?

    It seems of no small coincidence that the reversal of fortune follows on the heels of the DOJ and AP scandal.

    It seems less a matter of new found objectivity and more a matter of "oh hellz naw!"

    Uh huh. Tell me, where have they been the last 5 years?

    The liberal news media, after 5 years of protecting Obama, has decided they have been attacked by him with the AP phone record subpoena, plus they are weary of being lied to and having to repeat his lies.

    For a little while anyway, they've decided they've had enough.

    No, it just means this is so bad that even THEY have to report on it. I foresee an avalanche coming, as they dig they will turn on him entirly and bury him.

    They are indeed aggressive on the issues that affect them but where are they when it's just the unwashed masses that are affected ???

    Most of the corporate media at least has the decency to concentrate on real stories.
